Bloomsday is a commemoration and celebration of the life of Irish writer James Joyce during which the events of his novel Ulysses (which is set on 16 June 1904) are relived. It is observed annually on 16 June in Dublin and elsewhere. Joyce chose the date as it was the date of his first outing with his wife-to-be, Nora Barnacle; they walked to the Dublin suburb of Ringsend.

Here’s the rest:

Anne Roth of Skaneateles, freelance writer and former staff reporter of Herald-Journal, and charter club member: “It has been an interesting 15 years, not only for our focus on Joyce but the friendships that have been cemented through the club. Bloomsday has been an annual constant in my life except for the three years I lived in China, the one year in Oregon and the year of my illness. While visiting Ireland with my husband, Bob Cook, we walked as Leopold Bloom did through Dublin, strolling beside the Liffey, visiting Davy Byrnes pub and going by DART to Martello Tower on Easter Sunday.”

Richard Long of Auburn, writer and former Herald-Journal reporter and founding member of the Joyce club:
“The book is an absolute feast of literary and world history from the days of the Greeks and Romans to the present time; it is sublime to the ridiculous — going from esoteric discussions of Hamlet to rousing and profane Dublin pubs; it is a love story — of two people — Leo and Molly Bloom — and how their failed marriage seems to survive at the end when Molly utters her historic ‘Yes.’ ” …
